Engineering involves more than calculations and construction; successful engineers must hone "soft skills" surrounding workplace etiquette and ethics. For the inside scoop on developing these skills, readers will want to return to this feature from the 09-04-2020 Scout Report (note that dozens of new episodes have been released since its first feature).
What makes a great engineer? Soft Skills Engineering, a weekly podcast by and for software developers, demonstrates that much of the success stems from "the non-technical stuff." Hosts Jamison Dance (an engineering manager) and Dave Smith (a software engineer) launched the show "to help software developers level up their engineering skills beyond writing code." With ample bits of wit and wisdom, the duo tackles topics like "technical leadership" and "code review etiquette," among many more. The more than 200 episodes are available on Apple and Google Podcasts, as well as the link above. Wherever listeners tune in, they may want to read each episode's description, which includes the listener questions answered within. Those interested in submitting their own questions for Jamison and Dave to answer on an upcoming show can do so via the Ask a Question tab. Soft Skills Engineering is supported by various engineering companies, including: monday.com, Vettery, the O'Reilly Velocity Conference, Pluralsight, Algolia, and DevMountain.
